An Archaeological Investigation on the Wheatsheaf Public House Site, Chesterton

Change log


Armour, Nicholas 


The excavation on land under development by McCarthy and Stone at the junction of Union Lane and The High Street, Chesterton, has revealed a complex stratigraphy of late medieval gravel extraction pits and backfilling. This activity partially masks the remnants of earlier land divisions dating to the Saxon period and the creation of a series of property boundaries in the 11th and 12th centuries. These are indicative of activity on the site that grows through the 12th and 13th centuries, but appears to reduce to a low scale occupation in the late and post medieval period.
